Default no power from my v10

just bought this truck, hoping you guys can help me out, it has a v10 in it, and i cant seem to get it running right, it idles fine, but it has a hesitation on accleration, and when you drive it, no power, feels like it may be running down a few cylinders but im not sure. i replaced the plugs and wires, (yes i put champions in it) and it ran a lil better, but still no where near the power is should have. any input would be greatly appreciated guys, thanks
